Jordan Henderson is confident Marcus Rashford can continue making strides with England and help fill the void left by Jamie Vardy.

With Vardy having stepped away from the international scene following the World Cup and Raheem Sterling injured, Rashford returned to the starting XI in the Nations League defeat to Spain.

The 20-year-old put the Three Lions ahead at Wembley with his fourth international goal but was twice denied by Manchester United team-mate David De Gea in the second half as the visitors sealed a 2-1 win at Wembley.

“We all know how talented Marcus is,” said Henderson.

“His was a great finish. He had another one or two chances that maybe he would have liked to have scored but I thought he looked sharp.

“He was lively and he’s always a threat on the counter-attack. He’s a fantastic young player so he just needs to keep learning, keep improving. He’s a big part of our team.”
